No rings on its legs and there are plenty of ferals  nesting around that area of town. Families feed the ducks and pigeons at the same time about 10 yards from where this one ditched into the river

Didn't know that slugs are partial to peanuts but I've been seeing slug trails where I put nuts out for the visiting badger. Last night the slug was impatiently waiting for supplies to appear!

Mad little feckers, all over this oak stem we felled for the commune.

Never seen them before and here they where in the dozens.

Gave me the willies at first until I realised they were just mimics.

Hi Stuart

 

Yeah they really get you going the first time you come across them - I was convinced I was about to be very badly stung - again!

 

Do you have any other / clearer pictures ? 

Whilst the whole group are 'wasp beetles' I am curious as to what you have actually found.  Pretty sure that they are Plagionotus (rather than Clytus Arietis ) but I don't think they are P.Arcuatus  (wrong yellow/black pattern). They might be P. Detritus or possibly P. Scalaris - or maybe not ?!!!! 

I know there are people far more knowledgeable than me on here so hopefully one of them will jump in and clarify what you've got.

AB.

Found a bat in the processing stack, safely relocated to the scrap pile.

Nice. I used to look after a big old building and regularly had to meet Police for alarm calls caused by a bat inside, just opened the door and they would quickly find their way out.

 

You on holiday Khriss?
